Adjusting Idling Current
Required measurement equipment: DC Voltmeter
1. Preparation
(1) Avoid direct blow from an air conditioner or an electric fan, and adjust the unit at normal room temperature 15 °C ~ 30 °C (59 °F ~ 86 °F).
(2) Presetting
# POWER (Power source switch) STANDBY
# SPEAKER (Speaker terminal) No load
(Do not connect speaker, dummy resistor, etc.)
2. Adjustment
(1) Remove top cover and set VR714,VR724,VR734,VR744,VR754,VR764,VR774 on 7CH AMP UNIT at fully counterclockwise (c) position.
